Men and women who are approaching 30 may begin to worry that their true age will begin show. There are some steps that both genders can take in order to look younger than their age. Listed below are a few ways to look younger at 30 years old.
There are several natural remedies that can be used to reduce wrinkles without using an anti-wrinkle cream. Rub a few drops of olive oil into the skin and rinse off the face after a few minutes. The next day skin will be brighter and softer. Lemon juice also helps curb wrinkles due to its high Vitamin C content. Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, which helps skin keep its elasticity. Don’t forget to moisturize the neck area, as this is the one of the first places that wrinkles occur.
Maintaining good health can do wonders for the look and feel of the body. In order to stay healthy, do not smoke, exercise regularly, stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. Smoking can prematurely age the skin on the face and hands as well as stain teeth. Wearing sunscreen prevents sunburns, which can also age the skin rapidly. Having a tan can create a healthy, youthful glow, but limit time in the sun to protect the skin.
Take Care Around the Eyes
Puffiness and wrinkles around the eyes give off the appearance of old age. In order to reduce puffiness around the eyes, apply an eye cream to that area every night. Put the eye cream in the fridge a few hours before application to make puffiness go away faster. Chilled cucumbers and cooled tea bags work as natural remedies for puffy eyes. To prevent puffy eyes, make sure to get plenty of sleep each night.
Keep Skin Fresh and Clean
Use lotions and face creams to keep the skin moisturized and healthy. When skin is moist it looks younger, since dry skin tends to give the appearance of old age. Exfoliate the skin with a gentle face scrub to get rid of old skin cells on the surface, which allow the new ones shine through. Try an all-natural face scrub that contains oatmeal, yogurt and lemon juice to exfoliate, moisturize and protect the face.
Adhere to a Healthy Diet
Try to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible, since they have Vitamin A, C and D, which help promote healthy skin growth. Foods that contain omega-3s, like fish and peanuts, have been shown to reduce swelling and inflammation of the skin. Beta-carotenes, which are found in foods like carrots and sweet potatoes, are rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps skin look clearer and can aid in the reconstruction of skin tissue.
After the age of 30 skin tends to lose its elasticity and can become rough. Staying healthy, minimizing wrinkles and having clean skin are a few ways to look younger at 30. Both men and women can use these tips to keep themselves looking and feeling younger.
